Neil Freer is author of Breaking the Godspell, a book which delves into the implications of the radical theories of scholar Zecharia Sitchin (The Twelfth Planet, Stairway to Heaven, etc). Here he discusses the hypothesis that the gods of ancient cultures were actually from another planet that colonized the earth. Several lines of argumentation support this position. These include ancient objects that suggest the existence of high technology. Additionally, the ancient Sumerian clay tablet texts, when read literally, appear to go into great detail describing the science and technology of these beings.
